Sensationalist headline fail.

Dinosaurs laid eggs. Dinosaurs existed before chickens.

Proto-chicken species laid eggs. Proto-chicken species existed before modern chickens and likely evolved from said dinosaurs.

Now, if anyone needed to know whether a given chicken or its eggs came first, they have a definitive answer. Fortunately, answering that question wasn't the point of this research.

Eggs have been around about double as long as any bird if I'm not mistaken. Btw, if chickens are the only animals that have the protein necessary to form eggs, does that mean that chickens lay ostrich and turtle eggs as well?

They are referring to the formation of chicken eggs, not every egg in the world.

Yeah but then the whole discussion about proteins etc becomes irrelevant once again as well as that article and the experiment. Because it's no longer a biological problem but a linguistic one. What does the phrase "chicken egg" mean? An egg laid by a chicken, or an egg containing a chicken?

Crap, I thought it was all worked out and now you guys come along and introduce a bunch of doubt.

Now I dont know what to believe and I'm questioning my own conception of reality.

The egg vs chicken would also be based on a sudden creation of one or the other. So if you believe in the "poof there is the egg" what kept it warm and safe?????
